Supes is always as strong as the situation requires it seems but putting a number on it like they seem to be doing in the new 52 is just backing yourself into a corner later.

Morrison got away with it in All-Star cause it was a limited series and he solar overdosed allowing him to reach those silver-age strengths.

I definitely think he should be exerting himself when stopping trains and catching planes and whatnot. It adds to the excitement.
I can agree with this, as much as I don't want to.
If this is "realistic/grounded" take, he shouldn't be able to escape the atmosphere, but after an extended exposure (by the second or third film, or JL) he should be able to.

My only issue is in STAS he was beat up by EVERYTHING. Its why I didn't get into the show for years, because he was always getting beat up by anyone he faced.

I don't want that. I also don't want him punching lasers either.

If you are offended, remain offended.
